Winter 995 - Campaign Progress

The year 995 was another year of vicious combat. Altengard's star is on the rise. Treyine's is waning as it begins to lose more battles regularly. The Tropilium Empire lies in ruins awaiting the first brave souls to pick its bones clean. The Abyss and Northern Tropilium can surely not survive any longer in the face of their stronger neighbours. The Black Moon Incarnate army was defeated and sent back to the darkness, but it threatens to rise once more. So, just another year in Talomir then.

The political situation in Talomir in Winter 995

Autumn 995 - The Cliffs of Xobeohs

This battle was a lot of back and forth. It was mainly a contest between the Chariots of Stygustan and the Clibnarii of Northern Tropilium. They would ride up to within bow range, draw fire and be forsced to retire in turn. The magic advantage of Stygustan was huge as they were allowed to cast with impunity and to fairly good effect. The terrain really squeezed the battle to a very small area in the middle, which should have benefited Northern Tropilium. See what you think.

Comic Life 3 came through in the end but I had a few instances of it crashing unexpectedly as I started. Hope you all enjoyed it. The armies are still semi painted,  one day I will finish them (and the terrain).
